Reportage par TVSud: Le site expérimental de Puéchabon étudie les changements climatiques

Publié le 11/05/2017 par Laura Hurissel

A une trentaine de kilomètres de Montpellier, la forêt de chênes verts de Puéchabon accueille depuis 1984 un site expérimental, une sorte de laboratoire à ciel ouvert qui étudie l’effet du changement climatique sur le fonctionnement de la forêt. 3 installations mesurent en permanence les mouvements de températures sur les arbres et étudient également les effets de la sécheresse.

Emergence of functional and regulatory novelty at the self-incompatibility locus in Arabidopsis

Self-incompatibility in plants of the Brassicaceae family is controlled by a highly diversified molecular lock-and-key system consisting of a large set of specific haplotypic combinations of two tightly linked genes. This system has been a textbook example of natural (balancing) selection, in the form of a strong reproductive advantage for individuals expressing rare alleles. These haplotypes also form a striking linear dominance/recessivity hierarchy, whereby most heterozygote combinations express only one self-incompatibility specificity at the phenotypic level. The question of how so many lock-and-key combinations could arise in the first place and then establish such a complex network of dominance/recessivity interactions raises a series of interesting theoretical and mechanistic problems. In this presentation, I will detail how we are currently using this simple and experimentally tractable biological system to provide insight into the broader issue of how functional and regulatory novelty can arise in natural populations.

Hook, line and extinction: Can sound science save albatrosses from fisheries?

Richard Phillips    

British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK

Le vendredi 9 décembre 2016 - 11h30 Grande Salle CEFE (1919 Rte de Mende, 1e étage, aille C)

(Seminar in English)

Global declines of albatrosses and large petrels have been attributed to incidental mortality (bycatch) in fisheries, but without detailed information on demography and distribution, it is rarely possible to determine which component of populations are at particular risk, and where to target conservation efforts. Tracking data provide an essential tool for identifying the areas and times of greatest overlap and hence risk of interaction with particular fisheries. This talk will examine the threat posed by bycatch and, using the wandering albatross population at South Georgia as a case study, highlight the ways in which tracking, demographic and fisheries datasets can be integrated to understand the scale of the bycatch problem and the potential solutions.
